Spiced Candied Pecans

Deez nuts.  Deez spiced candied nuts are soooooo good.  These little babies are going to find their way into some oatmeal, on top of some french toast, mixed in with an arugula salad, maybe even with some ooey-gooey brie cheese on a toasty garlic rubbed crostini.  Sheesh, I’m making myself hungry.  I think spiced candied…
